Baranavichy police turn down election violation claims by local human rights defender
Baranavichy observer Siarhei Housha has received a reply from the city’s police department, saying that the minutes published by constituency election commission No. 5 was a sample form, despite the fact Mr. Housha argued that the paper was rigged by the commission’s members.
The observer says that he caught the election officials rigging minutes. He calls the decision by local police chiefs “a move to save the honor” of Mrs. Latyshava, chair of election commission No. 5. Mr. Housha also says another copy of the minutes has been issued to replace the falsified paper.
